The best way to see Scotland if you've got a tight budget. Even if you can afford more luxurious accomodation (accomodation is always singular in Britain), Youth Hostels are definitely worth using. All ages use them and cost is typically 5 pounds a night. Most of them have lights out at 11pm, except those in large cities which are often open later.
